Hello fellow fish friends

Hi! Ashley here! New to this app and already loving it!!! I have a 40 gallon bow front community tank with 3 hillstream loaches, 2 siphadon gobies, 2 electric blue rams, 1 cherry shrimp, 2 velvet blue tiger shrimp, and a bright red Mexican dwarf crayfish! Recently I have been adding flourish supplements to my tank for my live plants, do you think the iron I've been adding could agitate my fish? I noticed just this morning that my big male ram was "flashing"? No signs of stress, redness around gills, just got my water tested this morning and everything came back just peachy... thoughts?

That's awesome fish look absolutely amazing and you really have no problems with the Mexican Dwarf? If your fish are acting completely fine should be okay should read the warning to make sure it doesn't affect any of the fish really shouldn't need it if you have easy growing plants I never need to add anything because of my lighting does plenty for the plants

Thank you so much!!! I don't think anyone understands how much it means to me aquarist to aquarist saying "your fish look great" ahhh! I swear I stress over them more than they stress about anything! Hahaha I put a lot of hard work and efforts into everything so I can't tell you how much that meant! So I have a finnex planted 24/7 LED light, along with very easy care type plants. So based off what you're saying I think I'm going to lay off with the plant additives for awhile here and see if that has any effect on this situation. If it worsens I'm gunna take him in to get a scale scraping and see what kinda heartache I'll be put through next LOL. And yes the dwarf crayfish is such a little sassy man! Hahahahaha! Him and my big male ram love each other, they race to get to the biggest bloodworms first and have quite a comical relationship. They are super mindful toward each other and have never seemed to pick on anyone to a point where I think it's harmful or needs separation. I have lots of caves, crevices, ect which I think might help to being able to live happily in a community tank together. My dwarf crayfish has quickly become one of my favorite freshwater critters thus far.

Ha yeah I know I have the exact same hassle but all my fish are weird all my bottom dwellers go every where they actually rather have it floating around. Very smart idea to do that though

That's too cute hahah! All fish just have their own personal way is all I'm finding out. I could see how chasing it would be fun for them.
